“A most comfortable stay in this beautiful city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

We recently stayed 5 nights in a 2-bedroom flat. The whole booking process via email was handled very well and I commend the management on their personal, professional service in all areas. The flat is well-furnished and equipped, everything is tasteful, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The mattresses are fantastic! The only thing we lacked were wine-glasses for our meals. There are laundry machines in the basement of the building and, unlike other residences, the use of these and laundry detergent is generously supplied free of charge. The Residence is located on one of the main streets of Bologna, and passing bus traffic does generate a high volume of noise for the front rooms. As the weather was cool during our stay, we had no need to keep windows open at nights, but it could be a problem in warm weather. We tried to operate the heater/air-conditioners but without success. The Residence is very conveniently located for all Bologna's attractions and the nearby wealth of food shops made us glad of the apartment, where we could enjoy some meals 'at home'.
The building has no parking facilities but the management found us a garage very nearby and, although the local driving restrictions made initial journeys a nightmare, one quickly learns how to work with the system. The management had gone that extra mile to help find us parking facilities and were again helpful at the end of our stay whe we discovered we had left some items behind. We recommend Petronio Residence very highly for a most comfortable stay in this beautiful city.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2010

Never seen such a smart organisation of the residence before. The hotel is situated in the very center. On the shopping street. With the view on two towers. It is 4 storey and building with the independant locking entrance and lift. One floor - one flat. Our flat had two bedrooms. One with twin beds and another with a big qeen size and a baby cot as we asked. All matrasses were comfortable and pillows were new. The bedrooms are isolated and you don't need to cross the one in order you are going to bathroom. As for the bathroom - it is really good. Clean, spacious, new, warm. Also about kitchen - equipped and even with the big LCD. As for the minus - it is rather noisy from the out side. But it is the same problem if you are living in the very center. Just a few words about management - we had rented a flat for 4 days (it is weekly priced so we had payed as for 7). Our children were ill and we asked to stay for a couple of days. We said that we could overpay. But they told us honestly that the flat was empty in thise days and we could stay free untill the week ended.
+ free wifi and room service
